Canyon State Institute

Canyon State Institute  was started in April of 2004 as Data Entry Institute by Sheri Carparelli, who is the director of CSI. Sheri has over 35 years of employment services experience in the Phoenix area.  CSI’s reputation is very strong within the business community, employer contacts made over the years and the associated membership organizations.  The training is up-to-date and constantly changing to meet the needs of employers.  We offer high demand certification training in the industries that require national certification for employment consideration.

CSI is a corporate sponsor of Career Connectors, a local networking group.  CSI is a member of  the Arizona Affirmative Action Association, Valley of the Sun Human Resources Association, and the Arizona Technology Council.

CSI has developed an unique partnership with Western International University (West).  CSI’s graduates are eligible for college credits with West, saving thousands of dollars toward your degree.  We will be pleased to discuss this amazing opportunity with you.

CSI maintains small classes in a non-customary classroom setting.  All of the instructors are certified with experience in their field of instruction. We offer hands-on training with 100% instructor-led programs.  We have a private, weekly PMI® Study Group for all students.

Call 602-266-6630 for a tour of either of our two facilities, whether you reside closer to downtown Phoenix or in the East Valley.


Canyon State Institute helped me gain the certifications necessary to get hired at the next level at my job. Without their help, I wouldn't have been able to even interview for the position!

I had been out of school for a few years and needed new computer skills to qualify for jobs. With CSI's convenient online courses, I was able to get fully certified while still working full time!
